Getting Your Car Ready For Winter11.12.2019 | Okan Sengullu

The cold front has hit the midwest and if auto repair in Chicago, make sure you come to us before the snow really starts. Here are some tips on how to prepare your car for the winter this year.

Oil Change

Check your owner’s manual to find out what type of oil is necessary for your vehicle to function in the freezing and below-freezing temperatures.

Engine Coolant Check

Normally, your ratio of coolant to water is 50/50, but when winter comes, make sure the ratio is 60 coolant, 40 water.

Car Battery

Cold temperatures are notoriously known for draining a car battery quicker than usual. Make sure your battery is functioning properly by checking the charge. If you need help with battery maintenance, stop by our shop today for a professional to inspect your vehicle.

Washer Fluid + Windshield Wipers

You should consider using washer fluid with an antifreeze solution to help keep your windshield clean during the freezing temperatures. Windshield wipers need to be replaced every 6 – 12 months or sooner if they have a lot of wear and tear. Winter wipers will help with a harsher climate so grab a set of these before the snow begins falling.

Worn Out Tires

Inspect the air pressure in your tires to see if they are at the correct number for the colder weather. If your tires are worn out, consider getting winter snow tires for the tougher conditions.
